The brainchild of and Elaine McNamara and Lua Ryan Junior came to fruition last week when a Mock Wedding took place in Kennedy Park Roscrea to help raise much needed funds towards the construction of a playground in the area. The event was a huge success thanks mainly to all their hard work and planning that took place in the weeks building up to the much anticipated wedding.
The bride and groom were Elaine McNamara and Colman Carey. The bridesmaid was Mag O Rourke and the best man was Richard Loughnane. Flower Girl for the event was Elaine Loughnane and Pageboy was Damien Walsh. Thomas (Sawdy) Carney officiated over proceedings as the Cardinal and Francis O Rourke was the Father of the Bride. The wedding was a great success and everyone had a great night with lots of money raised.

getting a playground into the estate and to organise activities and outings for the children and youths of the three estates which is badly needed. The group started by calling a meeting to try and form our committee and ended up with fourteen committee members including three youths who are involved in all the decision making.
Pat Lee is Chairman of the group with Colman Carey acting as Vice Chairperson. Aideen Murphy and Sharon Whelan are joint Treasurers and Pauline Simmons acts as Secretary. Committee members also include Elanie Loughnane, Yvonne Sheils, Louise Feehan, Marie Morgan, David Abbott, Richard Loughnane, Joachim Feehan, Steven Simmons, and Edwin Simmons.
